Default Lee Vickers

They turned over a rock and discovered a DE who is 6'6" 285 lbs. and a 4.57 forty.

http://www.enewscourier.com/sports/l...124224040.html

A former QB gained 100 lbs to play on the other side of the ball. Hopefully orange was the only juice in his diet. Sick speed for a guy that tall. Are the Steelers planning on blocking kicks next year?

See, now THIS is a wise pick! Alonzo Jackson/Kamerion Wimbley at or about pick #44 is not.

I cant wait till training camp and see how all of the "new steeelers pan out." This will even be better because we get to keep alot more players longer now and a few of thsoe hidden gems could suprise some people. Cant wait till Latrobe !!!!!

YESSSSSSSSS he did and followed him throughout his career !!! I think Rooney saw Parker in high school and kept up with him and brought him in as an undrafted rookie.

It sounds like Vickers has some potential. I hope he becomes a beast.

When and where did that 40 time come from?

Add +0.12 until its verified. Still a strong 40 on a guy that big. Wonder how his strength and quickness rate.

Hopefully he's another diamond in the rough and he fits the squad.
